The application process is done in such a way that students that not only have academic prowess but also several other talents and passions makes this campus a truly diverse experience. There are a lot of philanthropic opportunities, as well as many clubs that give leadership lessons in whatever the student desires. Because Georgia Tech is a world-class campus, the opportunities offered to the students are many and are also well-funded for those who do not have a lot of money themselves. Because of this, over half of the student body participates in a program of campus before they graduate, which will normally be things like an internship, co-op, or studying abroad. The professors at this institute are extremely knowledgable in what they teach and most make an effort to meet the student where they need in order to further their academic progress. Overall, everyone on campus strives for greatness and bringing something into the world that helps them accomplish their dreams. Go Jackets!
Review Georgia Institute of Technology
Georgia Tech really challenges its students, not only because of its prestige but because it wants to expand the minds and boundaries of those who study there. The university takes advantage of Atlanta, and its connections with industry leaders to exceptionally prepare its students for jobs. While some aspects of the campus leave something to be desired, like the food and the stress, Georgia Tech ultimately provides its students with a wonderfully fun and engaging experience!
Georgia Tech is a great balance of city life and campus life. Located in the heart of Atlanta it is easy to assume that you'll be walking to class on hot city sidewalks among towering skyscrapers but this is far from the truth. There are plenty of trees and green grass spaces throughout campus and it is easy to escape the city feel. On the other hand, it is located just across a bridge from midtown Atlanta, one of the best places in the country for food, music, and entertainment. Piedmont park is also an easy walk away. The academics here are challenging, but a culture of future-oriented individuals makes it easy to stay motivated and work hard
